This isn't obvious when you are looking at a GFCI+Receptacle combo device, because you think "oh, the outlets are the sockets". But that's not the only kind of GFCI device. They also have GFCI+circuit breaker combo devices, and they also have barenaked GFCIs.
The latter devices seem senseless until you realize they are able to protect downline loads wired to their outputs. Well, GFCI receptacles can do that too.
They don't just have the 2 screws for hot and neutral? Underneath the "Do Not Remove - For Wizards Only" warning tape, there are 2 additional screws designed for protecting downline loads like GFCI breakers can.
Dumb would be fitting a GFCI+receptacle at every outlet location, when a wizard can use this feature to good effect.
Dumber is installing a GFCI on the protected output of another GFCI, because now you are wasting good money on redundant protection. You also have a nightmare when it trips, because they all trip and must be reset in a particular sequence.
